    Model: Class Ge 4/4 II Electric Locomotive “Glacier Express“ This is the Rhaetian Railroad class Ge 4/4 II electric locomotive, road number 623, in a special paint scheme for the Glacier Express. The paint scheme and lettering are prototypical for Era VI. All 4 wheel sets driven by two powerful ball bearingmounted Bühler motors. The locomotive has an mfx/DCC decoder with many light and sound functions. The pantographs are powered by servomotors and can be controlled digitally. Length over the buffers 57 cm / 22-7/16“.

    The slowest express train in the world - – this is what people like to call the Glacier Express – has been running for 90 years between Zermatt and St. Moritz. In the past, it was still steam locomotives at times, but currently powerful electric locomotives pull this train in the Swiss mountains. On the network of the Rhaetian Railroad it is the class Ge 4/4 II locomotives, which with their 2,300 horsepower and their maximum speed of 90 km/h / 56 mph have no problems pulling the train on the section of the route from Disentis to St. Moritz. Recently, the real life prototype of the LGB model 28446 – the locomotive with road number 623 and the name „Bonaduz“ – has been running decorated with the Glacier Express logo and the edelweiss with the Swiss cross chiefly pulling this express train. You don‘t see at all that the locomotive has in the meantime turned 36 years old – it is simply timelessly beautiful...
